Global Green Building Materials and Construction, 2nd Edition

Summary: This research report about Green Building Materials and Construction presents an in-depth analysis of the development, applications, products, technologies, manufacturers, and trends for products that help conserve energy in homes and buildings, reduce harmful environmental effects, and are themselves sustainable in terms of their composition and manufacturing. Rising costs for electricity, concerns about greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, diminishing fresh water supplies, deforestation, scarcity of raw materials, and a rapidly growing global population are among the key drivers of the development of new building designs, new construction techniques, and alternative building products and materials that are sustainable and minimize adverse environmental impacts. Although green building materials and green construction only represent a small fraction of the entire building industry, these segments have shown themselves to be resilient during the current economic recession and have actually gained market share during this period.
